Democratic U.S. House candidate Tim Bjorkman of Canistota says both the federal deficit and national debt are out of control. He says he’s lived his life as a fiscal conservative while the federal government is the opposite….




Bjorkman says House Republican leadership is seeking to make serious cuts to Social Security and Medicare to pay for the tax cuts.

He says that strategy is morally wrong, fiscally unwise and inflationary.

Bjorkman along with Republican Dusty Johnson, Libertarian George Hendrickson and Independent Ron Wieczorek meet in a U.S. House candidate’s forum next Wednesday at Dakotafest in Mitchell.
